Maroon Oolong, Loose Leaf Competition Grade Charcoal Roasted Oolong Tea, Made In Taiwan
Maroon Oolong is the local name for a particular charcoal roasted Oolong, from an organic farm on the rainy East Coast of Taiwan. Only organic vegetable fertilizers are used, and no chemical pesticides. Instead, this tea master applies a powder of the Juniper Tree, which pests dislike. To us though, the essential oil of the Juniper Tree is pleasant, and reminiscent of a forest walk.
Maroon Oolong is one of our favorite teas and a best seller. It is one of the easiest teas to brew, because there is little chance of bitterness, and yet its flavor is rich and smokey. This is a full-bodied dinner time tea when brewed hot, and a deeply refreshing beverage when brewed cold. Simply steep 3-5 grams overnight and refrigerate.
